NEW ARTICLE ALERT with examples of #consumption options with high potential to reduce #carbon footprints. Here are some of the top options and their mitigation ranges and a link to the article (tinyurl.com/tyk67kb). It is openly available @IOPscience ERL /trd Image
Super co-author team: @j_r_barrett @WiedenhoferD @biljana_macura Max Callaghan and @efesce . Some of the highlights are already covered by the Nature team (nature.com/articles/d4158…). /1
There is an obvious need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit climate change. Relying strongly on consumption reduction is not only the least risky option to stay within planetary boundaries, but also absolutely necessary where incomes are high! /2

Let's get one thing straight, right now, OK? #JohnMaynardKeynes was not a #socialist. He was a conservative economist called upon to develop govt policy during the Great WWI 1917 & into the Great Depression 1929 - 1936 with British world #capitalist establishment & #USPOD #FDR
He came up with clear thinking on how to deal with #depression. His model called #macroeconomics had nothing to do with the masses, unless of course you are referring to the ability of the poor to spend money on their #Consumption, given to us be their need to survive.
.#Macroeconomics was(is) a model of the economy that says if you want2 take on the inability of #capitalism to destroy itself from its basic #ripoffmentality which we are seeing so clearly at present you have to stand back & look at the economy as a whole, not its various parts.

Kinda neat fact, although we've had Merchandise piracy, we've not had Book piracy or far as I can tell even resale. :)

We are barely known (that helps), but more than that, I think each of our backers wanted to support us, not just consume a product.
It is up to us as creators to foster #opportunities for folks to see the difference, understand the difference, and communicate our abilities to PROVE the difference, between #Consumption, and Investment.
As creators we definitely understand #Investment, but communication is often tough.

Many of us are naturally #Abrasive or #Shy. Neither lending expertly to marketing or community engagement. You can learn to leverage either but it's often not a given.

There is some confusion about how the #market economy works. Simply put: production drives it, but #consumption is the intended outcome. It is false, but a common misconception, to think consumption drives it. It means one overlooks the core problem of economizing production,
which is solved by market allocation. Consumption as driver might apply for production for oneself, such as Robinson Crusoe on his deserted island, but it is different in a market setting. We do produce in order to consume, but we typically produce specific goods, which, through
sale, earn us an income that we can then spend on goods to consume. What goods do we consume? Those produced by others and acquired through purchases using the money we earned. This means our consumption, and what we wish to consume, is not the driver of the economy. Consumption

#Moodys has pulled down its growth forecast for FY19 to 5.8%. Only surprise is why it’s not even lower. In the past year growth has collapsed from 8% to 5%. /1

On the other hand #CPI is now at 4.6%. The laxmanrekha of 4% has been breached. A mix of drought, floods and unseasonal rain is driving food prices up. Core #inflation continues to fall to 3.7% reflecting the slowdown. /2

The wisemen and women of the economy have only one mantra - Cut, Pray, Hope. When in doubt cut rates.135 bps done but transmission is limited. We are told don’t look at nominal, real rates are still high. A single large cut is required. /3

I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.
Source:

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.

Secondly, despite going around the country in a 'secret & sudden' rush asking people about whether they'd like kill our Wild Life for bush meet, most answers from Kenyans boiled down to a firm NO!! .../2

Here's the Breakdown of the Total rejection of this 'bill'.
1. Ethical consideration: it will legitimize #consumption and #killing of wildlife.
2.The cost of implementation and control will supersede the gains.
3. It is a fallacy [a #bigwhitelie to say that proceeds ..
..will go back to community. @KWS generates a stunning 257 Billion Kenya shillings but only receives 4Billion of a budgetary support against an annual budget of 23Billion to care for Wildlife across 54 parks & reserves.
